I'd _like_ to keep compatability with 3.1.  But this is a major piece of 
missing functionality that we can't emulate on that version, and if more of 
the db queries are converted over to prepare/bindValue, then people using 3.1 
will have no info to send to the list if a query isn't working..

There's two options here - lose compatability with 3.1, or keep it along with 
a secondary message (say, 'Your version of Qt is too old to print out a valid 
error message here.  Please upgrade.' or something) in the DBError function.
